A Comprehensive Guide to Studying and Interpreting Communication Interaction
This practical book provides students and experienced researchers with tools for studying communication behaviors through direct observation. The sourcebook provides sound coverage of both cutting-edge and well-established systems, measurements, and procedures, as well as detailed information on measurement selection, coding, reliability assessment, and analysis. In addition to offering theoretical discussions from leading researchers in the field, each chapter also focuses on how to apply systems and principles in conducting actual original research and uses examples and exemplars to help readers understand and apply the methods.
This is an excellent resource for faculty and students researching interactive communication. Many coding schemes are included in this text and the material is easily understood.
This kind of book is needed. I will use this with students of master's program and part of articles are helpful also for doctoral students.
